Overview of Doctoral Research

Investigation into the physiological and molecular parameters of recovery and adaptation within a concurrent exercise paradigm.

The focus of Lee’s research activity, a collaboration between Northumbria University and the GSK Human Performance Lab, is to investigate recovery from and adaptation to concurrent exercise. This programme of research will focus on both acute (molecular signaling activity and protein synthesis measures) and chronic parameters (applied performance and body composition outcomes) in well-trained cohorts.
